Blind Items Revealed

April 29, 2009

This former A list always movie actress still considers herself A list even though in reality she is about D. She does have A list name recognition and was the star of one of the most famous movies of all time. Not highest grossing, just one of the most famous. Anyway, she is not known for her quiet demeanor and when she has a drink or seven can get rather nasty. Recently she got into a fight with her current boy toy and during the argument threw a glass or two or three at her toy. Well, on one of her throws she missed and hit an original Picasso she has hanging on her wall. The painting was shredded by the glass as it shattered as well as the beverage she had inside. Of course she told her insurance company it fell during a mild earthquake and landed on a glass table beneath the painting, shattering the table and damaging the painting.

Nice cover up

Bacon Ranch said...

I would think the remains of the painting smelling like a brewery may have given it away. Not too mention a quick check with a seismologist (sp?) about recent activity in the area.
Then again, depending on her insurance premium maybe they just paid out to get her to go away with her commando self.

Sharon Stone owns an original Picasso?

sandybrook said...

Poor betch! Her hubby the newspaper guy probably bought it for her before they broke up.

Lady Heisenberg said...

First thing that came to mind was Tom Green's rant in Stealing Harvard about how rich people have insurance and always get away with this kinda shit. Sharon and Courtney Love should get together and just wreck classic works of art together! Ugh this hurts my Heisenheart to think aboot

sandybrook said...

Anna I loved you in Falcon Crest! :)

VintagePrincess said...

okay, googled and found an article from 1996 that mentions Sharon's Picasso:

Before he knew it, David was admiring what looked like a Picasso inside a "mock French chateau". Sharon, barefoot and without make-up, wearing a cut-off black top and silk trousers, greeted him. Several other guests, including Sharon's current beau, her sister, and Stuart, the celebrity shrink, had already arrived.

"Is that a real one?" David joked, pointing at the Picasso. "It better be," Sharon shot back. "Or I've been screwed."

Isn't she known as a Raging Bitch. I know someone that used to work for a vehicle service and he says she would try everything in the book to try to take advantage of anything she wasn't paying for. The driver had strict instructions for pick up and delivery only with no side trips. She wanted to stop at several places on her way to her destination and was not accustomed to taking "no" for an answer without throwing a tantrum. This is not a woman who remembers what living in reality is like. I pity anyone employed by her. I'll bet its hard collecting money owed to you.

Seven of Eleven said...

That must've been on helluva glass to not only shred a painting but also destroy it in a single throw. Who knew Sharon Stone would move on from showing her stuff to shafting insurance companies?

Maureen said...

And I totally believe the story. My question is why didn't she have it protected by heavy glass? I guess I just don't get it. Would hate to live her kind of life. I don't see the point. I mean what does she do that she can be proud of?

keetz4 said...

Idiot! Once again showing how huge a lie her Mensa claim was.

Flora Goforth said...

@seven

Calling shenanigans. Throwing a glass at a canvas will not shred it.

TalksTooMuch said...

That would have to be a monster, clingy clingy glass for that to have happened that way. With prongs even. And funky music playing.

Simon said...

She claimed in a recent interview she didn't drink....hahaha of course not...

versace buckles said...

She is such a prescription pill junkie that my friend's and I used to call vicodin: Sharon Stones. I think she is this generation's Norma Desmond. Still really beautiful though and I sat diagonal from her at an AIDS dinner in DC and, atleast when doing her job, has a great charm and charisma about her with the general public.

versace buckles said...

Oh and I did not see her drink any alcohol at the dinner. But I do know a story about her picking up her pills at the pharmacy. Quite an assortment of white paper bags.

Ian's Girl said...

Yea, not sure about a glass shredding canvas, and it certainly wouldn't have ruined an oil painting.

Maybe it was a drawing or a watercolor?

sugarbread maker said...

Wouldn't be the first time she's been screwed without knowing.

sugarbread maker said...

Radishes!

I had a copy of Fantastic Four #1 destroyed in a tornado. The insurance tried to say that they wouldn't cover it until I could prove that it was valuable. This was back in the mid 90's before all the movies had come out but it wasn't very hard to get price guides and comic dealers to attest to it's value. I had only paid about $100 for it but got a cool $6500 for it in insurance. My Dad found it humorous that I got more for one comic book than the neighbors got for their car being totaled in the tornado.

I'd much rather have that book back than a Picasso, at least I can tell what Jack Kirby was trying to draw.

Principessa Marina said...

I saw her once when she was living in San Francisco. Probably about 15 years ago. She was getting out of a convertible outside the post office, wearing brown leather pants, and I have to tell you, she GLOWED. She looked every inch the movie star. Incredibly beautiful.

She used to live in a house on a cliff overlooking Baker Beach. #1 25th Avenue. It's on a little cul-de-sac where you can walk in and walk down to the beach (not an entrance to the beach that most people know about). GORGEOUS house. Her neighbor who was in the last house before the beach, right next door, had a pre-existing permit to do some work, I think raising her house's height, and Sharon Stone fought it.

When she and Phil Bronstein divorced, she sold the house for $13 million.

I seem to recall there was a feral cat that lived around there, she wanted it trapped and taken away.

Robin Williams used to live nearby in Sea Cliff, he gave fabulous goody bags at Hallowe'en.

BeckyMae said...

Oh I wanna get a goody bag from Robin Williams at Halloween now, Princepessa!! What was in them, pray tell??

Count Jerkula said...

The fact that she wasnt acting in Casino was easy to figure out.

A crystal whiskey glass would easily go through a glass covering a painting and cause damage.

Principessa Marina said...

@BeckyMae, alas I never saw Robin Williams's goody bags in person. Why does that sound dirty?

Long story but a few years ago I was running a puzzle hunt for grownups on Hallowe'en and decided to do it in Sea Cliff. The idea would be they'd have to ring people's doorbells and get their puzzles from the residents. So I asked everybody I knew in Sea Cliff to host a puzzle and they said yes, but I needed a few more houses so I started ringing doorbells, and I heard about Robin Williams's goody bags from them. Amazingly people were very nice about agreeing to pass out puzzles.

Sea Cliff is a beautiful neighborhood, and it's a real destination for kids for Hallowe'en. People drive them in from all around.

By that time I think Robin Williams had already moved out. His house wasn't on the beach, it was on this weird triangular lot where three streets met. He had a big wall around the house, and a topiary dinosaur in the yard.

I used to see Robin Williams around town. He was an avid cyclist. He has a huge trunk and little legs and arms, he looks like a spider. And he's the hairiest man I've ever seen. He's so hairy he's FURRY. All over, every inch of skin you could see was covered in fur.

Also ran into him once at a used bookstore when I was playing in a private treasure hunt. Sergey Brin (co-founder of Google) was on my team. We needed to identify some songs and there was Robin Williams and his daughter Zelda (she was about 13 at the time, must have been 11-12 years ago) ... Sergey reminded him that they had met at some function and Robin Williams obviously didn't remember him. I think a few years later he wouldn't forget Sergey Brin! In fact I think they co-hosted some event, they were the grand marshals at a local bike ride that used to happen every year.

Anyway he didn't know the songs we had to identify but he told us his daughter could help us.

I used to see him in the Marina district as well, one time he was coming out of a cafe and I was walking by with my dog, he held the door open for me and I said thanks but I wasn't going in. This was right around the corner from a place called the Dry Dock where they held NA and AA meetings - I heard that he attended those. I saw him often enough right in that area that I figured he was going to meetings.

BeckyMae said...

Oh now I want to see Robin Williams' topiary dinosaur!! (not his furry one, lol)

Great anecdotes @Principessa....I love SFO

Allis said...

Just gotta put my two cents in as someone somewhat expert in paintings. :p A glass would not shred the canvas unless the glass were broken before touching the painting, but a very heavy glass could indeed tear a hole in a canvas if said glass went through the canvas. Maybe that's what happened.
At any rate some of you commented to keep it behind glass. Have you ever seen a painting displayed in glass or behind glass at a museum? No, no, no! Bad.

Principessa Marina said...

Couldn't find a photo of the topiary but this is his old house:

Thanks for the 411, Allis.
